The following events occurred in the 1st millennium A.D.:
- 79: Zaccaria Innocenti casts Tarantallegra on himself and dances inside Mount Vesuvius. The volcano also erupts in this year, killing 1,500, presumably including Innocenti.
- 72-80: The Coliseum is built in Rome.
- 236: The Diagon Dispensary is established.
- Abt. 450-1066: The Anglo-Saxons settle in Great-Britain. It is around this time that the Hogwarts Pensieve is fashioned, which is believed to predate the school's founding.
- 819: The 1819 bottles of Berry Ocky Rot sold at the Hog's Head Pub start maturing for a full millennium.
- c. 962: Primitive broomsticks are first used for transport.
- c. 993: Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is founded by Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Rowena Ravenclaw and Salazar Slytherin. Peeves is apparently "created" at this time, and becomes the school's poltergeist.
- The Annual broom race, held in Sweden, begins in the 10th century.

- ↑ Slytherin was born in the 10th century while Hogwarts was also founded in the 10th century. It stands to reason that the Serpent of Slytherin was too.
- ↑ Pottermore, Hankerton Humble was the first ever caretaker at Hogwarts and was selected by the founders. Hogwarts was founded by them in the 10th century so it stands to reason Hankerton was born around the same time too.
